In trying to pinpoint large scoring differences I stumbled upon something I'd like you to explain.
- shared solution puzzle 2043, 'raw2'
Load this solution
do SHAKE for 3 iterations
The score should be 5593.something
Repeat the above steps at least 5 times. You will find DIFFERENT scores after some of the SHAKEs.
If SHAKE involves randomness, this is causing significant (59 points on this step alone ! >1%) scoring differences between identical starting positions. When extrapolated to a full puzzle round this can amass to hundreds of points difference.
I'd say this is a bug.
